programs for defense companies, transportation companies. they get federal dollars so they can do these programs. these programs go away january 1st pairs of these companies including defense, health care, transport will have to notify employees by november, the end of october to notify employees their jobs are cut. so in addition to the largest tax increase were going to see since world war ii, were also going to see a host of layoffs at year-end, all as a result of ignoring the fiscal class, which is why there is so much talk about it. so you know, i do think we are walking on shaky ground and unfortunately the president has been unable to provide the leadership required to get these two groups together, the right and the left. you know, part of the job of the commander-in-chief has to be to compromise and bring these two groups together. for congress to say we're going on vacation for five weeks and then come back and say we go away again until after the election, with nothing done about the fiscal class is truly irresponsible. and the fact that the leadership -- there is no le

, looking at the weaker economy, scaling back their plans. we've got the requirement that defense contractors have to send out notices to employees who will be laid off. they are already talking about whether they are getting nervous. if you're a dividend investor looking at the tax rate from 15% to 45%, january 1, with probability, you're worried about being in the market. this is not something that's going to wait until january. it's already harming the economy, and if we go over the cliff, it would be irresponsible in the extreme. the entire issue with the fiscal cliff is to get from here to the spring of 2013, being good stewards of the economy, and not cause a recession. that should be the goal. if you look at the pieces of the cliff, the payroll tax cut, the temporary holiday, there is a pretty much bipartisan consensus that's going away. there's some tax increases there. considered inconceivable we get rid of the taxes of the affordable care act from now until january 1, that's another increase for sure. that places a real premium on avoiding the rest of the tax hikes and s

, just to get a sense of her 10 years, that is more than our entire defense budget. anything by closing loopholes and deductions for the well-to-do, somehow you will not end up picking up the tab, then governor romney's plan may work for you. but i think math, common sense in our history shows us that is not a recipe for job growth. look, we tried this. we've tried both approaches. the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficit and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach that i'm talking about. we created 23 million new jobs, what from deficit to surplus and businesses did very well. so in some ways they've got some data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunity for americans. and i believe the economy works best when middle-class families are getting tax breaks so that they've got the money in their pocket. most of us who have done extraordinarily w

. let's end the drug war, let's legalize marijuana now. i would have never signed the national defense authorization act allowing for you and i as u.s. citizens to be arrested and detained without being charged. i think that's why we've fought wars. i would have never signed the patriot act. i think the homeland security's incredibly redundant. tsa should not be the federal government, it should be airports, airlines, states, knew mispalties -- municipalities. balance the federal budget now. i think we all recognize that what we're doing is not sustainable. i think the day of reckoning is close when we experience a monetary collapse. a monetary collapse, very simply, is when the dollars that we have in our pocket don't buy a thing because of the accompanying inflation that is going to go along with borrowing and printing money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we're spending. and then front and center, jobs. i'm going to be the only candidate advocating eliminating income tax, corporate tax, abolishing the irs, replacing all of that with one federal consumption tax -- in this

in the affirmative for a justice who you believe might find the defense of marriage act which determines same-sex couples are not entitled to benefits unconstitutional and senator menendez could you vote in the affirmative for a justice who might reverse roe v. wade? menendez: . i'm not going to have a litmus test. i've had experience helping to nominate judges, confirming judges to the state superior court and to the state supreme court as a member of the judiciary and as a member of the state senate. and i am going to look to nominees for their intellect, their experience. for their predisposition to not legislate from the bench, and i will look to nominate for the president of either party and treat them fairly. as i have in the past. >> moderator: senator? menendez: well i agree with my opponent that it's important to anyone who wants to be a justice of the supreme court. certainly intellect, temperament, experience, observance of the rule of law and precedent, but the supreme court is the final word of what is the law of the land and so therefore i don't want to see more justice scalia's

tireless defense of our unalienable rights as americans. [applause] the second thing we would like to do is actually, i was hoping that i could really talk about this because i was so excited when i saw it again, but some very generous benefactors, when they heard we were going to honor brent tonight spontaneously like this, they said we want to help and we want to give something. but they are as humble as brent is, so we are not to say what it is, but norma, get the suntan lotion out and enjoy him rejuvenate for the next 25 years. [applause] to show you how unscripted arise, we were supposed to have the voice of god tonight call us at. could you have her the board of directors of the media research center. dr. fein, rebecca mercer, bill walton. mike tyson can be with this more herald sentiments, but i want to do one last thing. and that is, you should all have some champagne and ask you to rise and just join with the board ensuring that the staff of the mrc coming to think brent for his quarter century of work, his vision, his dedication. this is someone that works as hard today 25 year
